Can't Remove HTTPS From Loca Site

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I pulled a site from WP Engine and the domain was https://sitename.local on my local machine. I don’t setup certs for local development so I went into the database and updated the siteurl and home url under wp_options to be http://sitename.local

Every time I try to view the site it still redirects to https and has a bunch of error messages because the site is trying to load secure when I don’t have that setup

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Pull site from wp engine to local

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @ZolaDesigners

What about just changing your Router Mode to Localhost? Localhost doesn’t support HTTPS so it would force your site to work with HTTP anyway.
